Microsoft admits it's lost a lot of ground in the mobile device market.
"We were ahead of this game and now we find ourselves No. 5 in the market...We missed a whole cycle. I've been quite public about the fact that I've made some changes in leadership around our Windows Phone software."
Serves 'em right for delivering a product as dismal as Windows Mobile. If they don't catch up this year, with the release of Windows Phone 7, it's game over.
